Lisa + Martin’s Wayhome Music Festival Engagement Session
We camped, ate cheddar smoked sausages off the barbecue, drank a few beers, listened to some amazing bands and took a few photos. The WayHome music festival was the perfect location for Lisa and Martin’s engagement session.
Music has always played a huge part in Lisa and Martin’s relationship; from when they first met, to where they go on vacation. When I was chatting with them about ideas for their engagement session, and the WayHome Music and Arts Festival in Orillia came up, it sounded like a great idea. Best of all, it suited their personalities and their love of music!
Lisa and Martin first met while they worked at Bench together. They only had three shifts together before Martin moved back to Montreal for the summer, but they spent them quoting their favourite movies, singing and dancing to their favourite songs. As Lisa described it, “there was just an instant connection!”
The next five years were filled with music and festivals; from travelling to Bonnaroo in Tennessee four years in a row, to attending the inaugural WayHome festival in 2015. To each and every festival, they would listen to the playlists that Martin would create. A mix of old tunes from their favourite artists, to songs from bands they have just discovered. Music played such a huge part of their lives, that when Martin proposed to Lisa on Christmas morning last year, he wrapped her engagement ring up with an Arcade Fire record (even though they didn’t own a record player.)
The fact that Arcade Fire was headlining the Saturday night of WayHome this year was a huge plus! Since it’s one of Lisa’s favourite bands, we went into the VIP section to watch their show. The show was incredible. Super high energy and playing all of their best songs, they finished the show with a confetti canon and a fireworks show!
